You Dirty Rat! Rodent Control in Fort Myers, FL

Posted by Keith Ruebeling On December 11th

“I just NEED you to get rid of the RATS!”

Imagine it’s December and you’re the Executive Chef at a country club in a beautiful, high-end community in Fort Myers, Florida. Soon club members will be flocking down-south, returning to their winter homes and looking forward to that first special meal with all their friends back in the clubhouse.

This should be an exciting time of year, but a dark cloud looms overhead…

You have a serious rat problem on your hands!

Somehow, as the Executive Chef, you’ve been deemed with the responsibility of eradicating the problem. You’re also the one receiving calls from members complaining about seeing rodents around the building and even scurrying across the parking lot. Guests working out in the gym are finding rat droppings all over the floor and staff aren’t looking forward to opening closets, let alone stepping foot inside them. Management is relying on you to maintain their reputation for quality and save the community from embarrassment.

What do you do now?

Well, in this case, you ask Larue Pest Management to step in and take over, because the current rodent exterminators just aren’t quite up to the task.

After years of protecting homes and businesses from rats and mice, we’ve learned a few things that can make a big difference when it comes to effective rodent control in Fort Myers, FL. Read the rest of this entry »

8: Looking to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants in Cape Coral?

Posted by Keith Ruebeling On July 18th

Looking to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants in Cape Coral?

This is the eighth installment of 15 Household Bugs in SW Florida That May Freak You Out, which can be downloaded from our free eBook library.

If you have large, reddish brown ants in your home, you might have carpenter ants. These ants are often half an inch long and have chunky body parts. Their size can be intimidating and even a little freaky. Many carpenter ants are wingless, but large colonies do have ants with wings.

As their name implies, carpenter ants love wood. Unlike termites however, the Florida carpenter ant will not eat the wood in your home. Unfortunately, they love to nest in your attic and in wall voids.

In most cases, carpenter ants have a main nest outside your home in a nearby tree or stump. However, given enough time, they may establish a secondary nest inside your home. Carpenter ants prefer wood that is rotting or wet. If the wood in your house is not water damaged, you are less likely to have a problem with these ants. With proper home maintenance (fixing leaky plumbing and keeping wood painted and sealed), you will reduce your chances of an infestation.

Homeowners have a very difficult time fixing carpenter ant problems on their own because the primary nest can be hard to find. Often, you need a Cape Coral pest control professional that is knowledgeable about carpenter ant habitats and preferences to help to get rid of them permanently.

We do find it helpful when homeowners keep a careful eye on their carpenter ants before calling us. Keep notes on things like:

Grub Worm - Lawn Care

This is the 3rd installment in “11 Ways to Ensure You Have the Greenest, Healthiest Lawn in Your Neighborhood which can be downloaded for FREE from our library of eBooks.

Grubs are small, “C”-shaped bugs that eat grass roots. They can cause additional damage by making small tunnels through the root area. When grubs hurt the roots, they make it more difficult for your grass to absorb water and nutrients. This can make your grass more susceptible to drought and other problems. Naples lawn care will definitely be needed and the longer you wait the more costly it can become.

If that wasn’t bad enough, grubs are also tasty treats for raccoons and armadillos. These unwanted guests will…
